Majors in biology obtain a broad and modern education in the biological sciences.
You will integrate concepts from the broad curriculum to solve real world, biological problems. From investigating genes and cells to studying ecosystems, you will gain a strong foundation in biology that includes practical classroom, laboratory and field experience.
As a biology student, you will have the opportunity to take graduate-level elective courses that are generally not offered at other schools our size.
You will have access to our well-equipped labs for ecology, microbiology, molecular biology, cell culture and physiology; a greenhouse to grow and study plants; and a suite of labs for the growth and study of aquatic organisms.
You can conduct research with our faculty using state-of-the-art equipment and facilities found right in our department. Collectively, our research and classroom experiences will provide you with the tools you need for graduate school and medical school, as well as other health professions or your career.
